that we came across a statement from them and tep and transit effective project and shared with us and compleated in 2008 and list of solutions similar to those proposed by transportation consultants with whom we spoke. the muni managers we finally did speak with shared the fact that the 2008tep plan has been halted to budgetary concerns and was now only being partially implemented. in our report we acknowledge the resurrection of 2008tep as a step forward from muni and encouraged the expansion of it to speed up muni and ways to avoid switchbacks. in summary the 2011-2012 grand jury conducted a survey of other systems and four of which had higher rider satisfaction ratings than muni. we found that the use of switchbacks was not a commonly used practice of all systems and rejected by the managers who felt they're an sult to passengers and rather the other systems use variety and easy and low cost practices to ensure rider satisfaction. many are similar to those identified in muni's 2008 effectiveness transit project. unfortunately although it has been resurrected it hasn't been updated

valley farm is a wonderful use and we've managed to get an extension, i think a six-month extension, at least. and i believe that what we need to engage in is some conversations with mo, with the developers, with the community, and the neighbors to try to come up with a strategy around the timeline for the development and see if there are ways that we can work around the construction and that sort of thing. so, i look forward to having those discussions with members of the public who are here today to see if we can find a way that we can have a simultaneous use. in the past we've looked at legislation around temporary uses, at sites that have been permitted for development. and i think that it's time that we revisit that legislation and given the enthusiasm that was seen in the city around urban agriculture and some of these community farms, i think that we really do need to find a way of legislating these temporary uses because right now it it seems a little bit too arbitrary in many ways and we need to have some kind of policy around it. so, i would like to work with mo and planning a

in the desert is turf. turf uses a lot of irrigation and uses spray irrigation, so what we've done here is use artificial turf. you're never going to be able to achieve the look of back east or the look of, say, california, with subtropical plants, but our landscapes are still lush and use about 30% of what the subtropical landscape with turf would use. las vegas has adopted a drought tolerant ordinance. we're using less water today than we used five years ago, despite over 300,000 new residents. i think it's a pretty amazing example as to how a town can really turn on a dime if there's the political will and if the public gets behind it. narrator: even the casinos and resorts have adapted to efficient water use. mulroy: the las vegas strip uses only 3% of all the water that we deliver. and when you think about it, it's the largest economic driver in the state, the largest employer, bar none. they knew they had to go the extra mile. and they've embraced conservation. and it's almost beyond belief that they're right now in the process of building another 15,000 rooms. southern nevad
